According to Star magazine, Nicole Richie and husband Joel Madden are fighting.
The twosome are getting ready for a long separation while Joel serves as a judge on the Australian version of The Voice — and he’s leaving Nicole behind!
A source said, “Nicole was opposed to Joel’s doing The Voice from the start, because she doesn’t want to endure the months apart. But Joel isn’t listening. He insists that he needs to do it for his career and signed on without her okay, which set off a pretty nasty round of fighting. They spent most of the day bickering about the show.”
Sounds like trouble in paradise? Perhaps he could just remedy the situation by either not doing the show at all or just taking her and their children with him?
She was against his move to do The Voice because she’s gearing up for her new show, Fashion Star. The source said, “She really can’t go with him to Australia, but also she just doesn’t want to. Nicole relies on her family and friends in L.A. to help out with the kids, especially since Joel often isn’t around to pull his weight.”
The insider said, “He’s usually either huddled in the studio or on tour. Nicole complains all the time that she feels like a single parent.”s career rather than her,” says an insider.
